Echo LM-212 push mower

This is kind of a rare machine. I believe the deck and frame are made by Jacobsen, re-badged for Echo. The engine is made by echo. Mower runs well, has less than 50 hours of use, never used commercially. I normally get it out of the garage every other month and run it for a few minutes. I'm moving and don't want to put it in storage.

Parts are still available, I updated the air filtration last year so it uses a heavy duty auto style air filter not the foam sponge. I have the foam filter and housing that will go with the mower.

I don't think they made them for too long. I had one back probably 23, 24 years ago.

I had no idea they made them that long. I think I bought the one I had in 1989.

Keith, you are right, I checked the Echo website and they only made them from 1988-1989, I guess i bought it as new old stock.

Pretty cool to have a rare example like that. Especially with such low hours. I've told people who have sold mowers for years that Echo once sold mowers and they look at me like I'm crazy.
